On the Review tab, under Comments, click New.
Type the comment text in the comment balloon.
Tip You can also turn on Track Changes, which uses revision mark to show additions, deletions, and formatting changes.
Delete a comment
Select the comment that you want to delete.
On the Review tab, under Comments, click Delete.
Tip You can also delete a comment by clicking the close button in the upper-right corner of the comment balloon.

Under Personal Settings, click User Information .
In the First, Last, and Initials boxes, type the first name, last name, and initials that you want to use in your comments.
